by the sales tax. it doesn't care if you're a janitor with four kids or a cardiologist with lots of dollars. the greater percentage of income you pay, if you don't make that much money, that sales tax on the egg might be 1% of a day's pay for you. it could probably be more like a thousandth of a percent of the cardiologist's paycheck for the day. a sales tax is therefore among the least populist way of raising money for government, proportionally speaking. it takes the most from people with the least money, and the least from everybody who has more money. because of that backwards impact, because it's harder on the poor and easier on the rich, you might think a tax like that would be among the most unpopular tax ideas. but in bright red states, states where republicans have complete control of the government, that tax all of the sudden is really popular. this month in louisiana, republican governor bobby jindal rolled out his agenda for this year. get rid of the income tax and corporate taxes where how much you pay depends on how much you make. but do not worry about the billions in lost ta

line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his plate. >> all right. peter alexander, white house correspondent, thank you so much. >>> we want to tur

raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in taxes in america. the effective corporate tax rate today is the lowest it's been since 1972. of course republicans want to cut social security, medicare, medicaid. but i think it is time for large corporations who are not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share. >> i want to ask you about your vote yesterday on filibuster reform. you voted no. you don't think it goes far enough. why? and is getting something done better than nothing? >> yeah, i think getting something done and making the senate a little more efficient is better than nothing. but at the end of the day,

immigrant haves to pass a background check, learn english english, pay back taxes and fines and then go to the back of the line of immigrants to become americans. this is very similar to what the white house has been pushing but will conservative republicans and voters think this program is amnesty and refuse to support it? it was a contentious of the presidential campaign and the die outchotomy defined not just the parties but the candidates. tomorrow the president heads to las vegas. here's a preview from his inaugural address. >> our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the hopeful, striving immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and eng neerls are enlisted in the workforce rather than expelled from the country. >> let's start with luke rus effort on the hill. what are you hearing this time about what people on the hill are saying about this bill? kit get through? >> reporter: well, there's sort of two cliche things from capitol hill today, toure. number one, renewed optimism around the legis

to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing us very quickly. and party leaders are finally understanding that. you know, roger els, i brought up richard haass, roger els before. roger els saw this coming well before the 2012 election. he had realized what had gone wrong. not only at his network but also in the conservative movement of the republican party. that's why he was running out and talking to chris christie saying, get in this race. you can save this party

. but juan talk about people like you who live in city and pay property taxes should you have an option for public schools but people of low income should be able to look at their schools and say i'm not going to send my kid there. i want another option. that's what this is all about. >> kimberly: a good point. every child deserves an excellent education. it should not be predetermined by what your parents or providers, socioeconomic status is and whether you can afford to pay the exorbitant bills for private schools. they are not cheap. ronin was in public school but there are so many kids in the class i think one day they lost the little guy. you have don't stand out. if you need extra help it's difficult to get it. great teachers, mean well, but they are challenged by the numbers. you go to private school but who is able to afford that? some schools are financial aid assistance there. has to be an alternative that you don't the children educationmly discriminated against because they can't afford a $45,000 or $60,000 school. >> dana: that is a great point. the way you put it in terms
deserve a dollar and a dream? should tax dollars be spent on lotto tickets? we report. you decide. >> i want to go out on a limb. speaking of luck, this fan makes a one in a million shot. >> with a half court hooker. >> look at that shot. he probably enjoyed the look from lebron. >> lebron james tackles him. more on that straight ahead. good thing they are now dating.

[ laughter ] until 9:45 when the wheels fall off the bus. it's happening right now. >> it's so cold. we do begin with an extreme weather alert. deep freeze is making for dangerous travel conditions around the country. in arizona, there was a scary landing for a small plane. once it touched down, it hit a patch of ice and it slid off othe runway right into a fence. i think it's like dri
't marginalize it all. >> say on the tax policy, they fought on raising taxes on the rich. 60% to 70% of the public agree with the president on that. so they're marginalized on a lot of policy matters, and the stupid comments don't come out. >> coming out for lower taxes are not going to get you beat. why don't they stick to the strong points? republicans looked ridiculous this week when they decided to go after hillary clinton, who is riding so high in the polls. why did they go after her at the very point she was at her strongest, they attacked. let's take a look. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable not to know of the request for security that really i think cost these people their lives. >> madam secretary, you let the consulate become
hopefully with full understanding of how difficult the tax is. and finally, last couple of days we have been ability to event what was called a nuclear option in the united states senate. a lot of people don't appreciate how important it was for us to get that done. chuck schumer and i and others and dick durbin were involved a bistart san effort to avert that. we were able to do that with the co-leaders. there is a desire for bipartisanship here in this body. i think we can show the country and the world that we are capable of tackling this issue, a looming and terrible issue that has to be resolved in a bipartisan basis and i believe the majority of the american people support such an effort and i want to thank my colleagues again and the ever congenial senator schumer. >> now we'll have the even more congenial senator durbin. >> i want to thank my colleagues. john mccain, thanks. we have been down this road before but i feel very good about our chances this time. chuck, thank you for your leadership on this. i'm sure that marco and bob and lindsey and i understand that you've been the for

about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-capacity magazines, but, of course, that ban on assault weapons is r
, democrats are demanding tax increases. and republicans are saying no way. chris: an expert on capitol hill. kelly. what do you think -- when you go around and just chat with people, do you sense that there is this cracking of ice that maybe we should have a hand in legislation and not just say no? >> i think there's less focus on what the obama politics of the moment or his legacy. and it's beginning to creep, at least with some people, about what story they will be able to tell for the next election of what they did. they recognize that the president has had a lot of capital. he will use it. but for them, and it's not -- we talked about, they're split but there are some people saying thousand can we influence things? -- saying how can we influence things? chris: why don't they start passing bills in the house on background checks? >> more willingness to move forward on immigration than anything that hags the word gun in it. chris: thank you. when we come back, scoops and predictions right from t chris: welcome back. chuck todd, tell me something i don't know. >> sacks by chambliss retirin
's a way to win the tea party back after voting for taxes on the wealthy. bring a chart. that worked for ross perot. >> here's the deal see! >> john: we're lucky because john mccain made a rare sunday morning talk show appearance. for those of you who don't know, john mccain has in his house he sleeps in the attic and he has a pole to slide down and a red phone in case a sunday morning show calls. [ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another network. >> john: her people are calling mr. zucker all weekend. >> she did make a comment on her interview with breitbart where she said we shouldn't just be preaching to the choir. conservatives need to reach out. which is funny because she did it on breitbart. she's setting herself up to reach out to a larg

for this and it doesn't matter. they are protected by the tax code. we will never know. it's ridiculous to think he is anti-women and all these things. he was conservative for nebraska, but not hitler or somebody. i find it preposterous that this ad is out there running. >> as steve mentioned, hagel's confirmation is not really in doubt at this point. my question is, was it ever really in doubt? the senate has a history of confirming their own when they are put to the test. >> listen, the last that happened was john to youer, a senator from texas and the one before that was 1959. the senate pretty much protects their members. the tower nominations are similar to this one. guess who is going to introduce chuck hagel tomorrow? guess who the chairman and ranking member of the armed services committee were during the tower nomination? the same two men. the biggest thing about the tower nomination was that that was taken down by conserfatives. a guy named paul was a pretty big conservative. you know who he is and he testified after tower testified before the committee. he wasn't a good person and the fb
in tax and regulatory policies, that discouraged business investment and job creation for all workers, including union workers. lou dobbs is the host of "lou dobbs tonight" and the percentage of union workers, the lowest in 76 years. >> and it's a decline taking place, megyn under president obama whose principle allies and his ground operations are america's labor unions. the afl-cio service employees unions, the teachers unions, and the national labor relations board which he has stacked with his democratic allies, pro labor, driving the principal agency in charge of relations between business and labor. >> megyn: they've tried to make it as easy as possible nlrb for a company to union, a work force to unionize. why is it? because the companies are hurting and therefore, they dent feel -- the unions don't feel like they could extract what they want from the company, so why bother? >> well, the unions are extracting what they can and it has risen in point of fact. and the extraction takes place really between the union member, the man or woman, working as a member of the union sending
